Who did the US fight during the American Revolution?
Great Britain and the Loyalists and Native Americans that were allied with them
Because the Americans were horrified by the violence used by the French during the revolution. They were big fans of Louis XVI because this King had sent French troups to the US to fight with the Americans during the American revolution. They couldn't believe that a nation was actually capable of killing their monarchs, women, children and thousands of people, and in a gruesome way.
